I will email out the invites Tuesday Morning. IF you need help signing up for zoom please reach out to me ( 914-2644 or plumbdryates@gmail.com)

One of the ways we have decided to still have a little normalcy in our lives is through these digital meetings. We held the first one on what would have been or regularly scheduled Communication. Everyone who has taken part in these virtual get meetings has said afterward how wonderful it was to be apart of it. I encourage you to join in with this one! we have fun and swap stories. We will begin at 6:30 sharp!

I have made several pleas to you to reach out if you are in need of ANYTHING, and I again say if you find yourselves in a destitute circumstance PLEASE reach out to me. We are all in this together, none of us are alone in this. The world seems big and scary, but I assure you WE your Brothers are still here for each other through this. WE will stand with you and do what is necessary to ease your burden. We can’t do any of that if you don’t reach out. You can call or text me any time (941) 914-2644, you can e-mail me Plumbdryates@gmail.com. If you know them you can send smoke signals. But we can’t meet your needs if you don’t share them with us.

I hope ALL of you are in good health, I hope all of you are doing what you can to stay safe and healthy through this because I look forward to seeing all of you back in Lodge very soon. We will pick up where we left off like none of this ever happened because it is but a bump in a very long, VERY old road. Remember your Lodge officers and I stand ready to help aide and assist you, with any and all of your worries. Don’t be to proud to ask a Brother for a hand, this isn’t something ANY of us have ever experienced in our lifetimes. We are here, we are willing and able to help, don’t hesitate to ask.
